Default Can you see better with contacts than with glasses?

I honestly thought that I saw better with contacts than I do with my glasses.
There were no limits to my vision in every direction, no rim of the glasses stopping what I can see unless I turn my head in that direction.
It was amazing to me the huge difference in a very HUGE positive way that contacts made for me.

I don't think there's that big a difference for me. Maybe it's time to get contacts again and see what I think.

I noticed a big difference, too. It's why I hate and love my contacts. I hate them because of the poking myself in the eye and taking them out is never a joy ride...

But every time I put them in I see clearer than I ever have in my life. It's not just where the lenses are. Since it's on the eyeball it's like I have perfectly normal eyes...until something gets under the lense, like an eyelash, and I start squinting and winking like a randy pirate.

I have to agree with the OP. I love my contacts when I have them in. Don't have to worry about so many things when I have contacts in. The one thing I used to hate was when it rained and they got wet and started running, or when I would go from cold to hot and they fogged up. Never have to worry about those things with contacts.

i think you see better because contact lenses are clear whereas glasses can get durty and dusty if you dont clean them properly.

Great post I am trying to decide between contacts and glasses and this post helps out. I personally rather have contacts, but weighing all options right now.
